Nutella Cheesecake Dip


This sweet dip is based on a recipe I ran across over at The Boys Made Me Do It blog.  A tinker here and a tinker there....toss in some of the glory that is Nutella....perfection!  This is ridiculously good.  Seriously...very hard to resist just diving right in with a spoon....or finger.  Ahem.  Serve with pretzels, vanilla cookies, or even gingersnaps.  Some Ritz crackers might make a fun dipper as well.


Nutella Cheesecake Dip

1/2 cup tub margarine, melted
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 8oz packages reduced fat cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp rum extract (vanilla would also be fine)
1/2 cup Nutella

Stir together melted margarine, brown sugar, and rum extract.  Microwave 30 seconds.  Let mixture cool.

Mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.  Add in melted margarine mixture and Nutella.  Chill.  Serve with pretzels, cookies, or crackers.

  6. I made something similar with only three ingredients, sugar cream cheese and Nutella! Might have to try it with brown sugar, but honestly I love the dip I made too.
